    Recently BHW release timthumb security venerability, and its update page, two days after i updated my site, today 2hrs ago i've been attacked 300 times , it was stooped by my wordpress firewall plugin and the update in timthumb , below are details :

    ip: 94.198.96.143
    Situated in:Italy
    Offending Parameter: src = /g0../0d1.gif
    Attack on : [mysite].com/wp-content/themes/[random theme name]/tools/timthumb.php?src=/g0../0d1.gif

    This attack was fully automatic as the theme name kept changing, i suggest all guys out there with this venerability to immediately take action and also blacklist this ip.
    I can list all the theme names of attack, but its lots of work.
